From the Series Origins: Urban Legends
Strange lights are seen dancing above a ridge of mountains in Appalachia—too quick to be satellites and too random to be planes. Large symbols have been pressed into fields of crops, visible from high in the air. Are they messages, or are they the work of people playing a trick? Close Encounters, part of Full Tilt’s Origins: Urban Legends series, presents timelines, stories, and fun facts about aliens and UFOs. Readers will discover thrilling tales of alien abductions and UFO sightings and will be invited to consider an age-old question: Are we alone in the universe, or have alien lifeforms already made contact?
